Son will play Kang Han-na, a social media influencer and third generation chaebol who gets appointed as the company’s director of social media.
Joining Son and Lee will be Han Joon-woo (Pachinko), Jo Sung-ha (Lovers Of The Red Sky) and Jeon Hye-jin (Uncle). Han will play Park Young-woo, Han-na’s old friend and loyal right-hand man.
Meanwhile, Jo will star as the director of planning at the advertising agency, whose ultimate goal si to become the company’s CEO. On the otherhand, Jeon will portray working mother Jo Eun-jung, who has to balance her career and family life.
“It is a cast that is perfectly befitting of each of the characters even from just their images. From there, each and every one of the actor’s acting experience is so deep, creating an ideal lineup,” said the K-drama’s production team.
“We will show the vivid story of advertisers who fiercely walk their own paths towards their goal of success in the world of advertising which is like thin ice,” they added. Agency is set to premiere in 2023.
